Avatar_n_tn Do you think if I used this before for a few months and didn’t have any negative <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>term</span> side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span>, Should I have nothing to worry about?
480448_tn?1426952138 ONE important thing to remember that I learned, and have never forgotten is that these two <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> CANNOT exist without anxiety.....but that anxiety can exist without these sensations. Derealization is basically a change, an alteration in the PERCEPTION or experience of the external world....in other words...everything LOOKS very strange, very "unreal" (movie like, in my experiences). Depersonalization is a subjective experience of unreality of one's self. So the difference is...
3119293_tn?1342054132 First, can someone point to a reliable web site where they list the symptoms? Second, how <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> I can expect this general lousy feeling last? And last, how <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> will it take to get back to a feeling where I want to do more than just lay around all day? Thank you all in advance for answering my questions.
4622451_tn?1360598855 I use <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flonase</span> now - it's a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> acting prednisone based nose spray. It isn't like taking prednisone orally - I have to occasionally, but hate it. It's a prescription, but if anyone needs something and doesn't want the hell that is Afrin and the other quick acting nose sprays - try these - there are several types. (flonase and Nasocort) Boy - that made me laugh - I remember making my husband go to the drug store to get more Afrin for me.
Avatar_n_tn there are actually no short term side effects and it's the only thing that gets me through the day. I have talked to my doctor in lengths about the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>term</span> side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span>..they are SCARY! if you can get by with a combo of tablets and sprays...don't even consider steroids. they do work really great. have you tried flonase? apparently that's a steroid based nasal spray and it works really good for me. i have severe allergy to dust and i just use half the recommended dose and it works.
492869_tn?1285022533 I started believing that I was dying. It's no wonder too, with all of the side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> I was having. Worsened communication skills (I'm already autistic), lack of short term memory, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, nasal swelling (by the end of two months my nose was visibly twice the size it had been), constant sinus pain, frequent nose bleeds, stabbing eye pains, and more.
Avatar_n_tn The respiratory risk is both immediate -- poor control of asthma and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>term</span> -- the progressive loss of normal lung function. Seriously consider smoking cessation. You may want to look at our Quit Smoking Topic Center at http://www.nationaljewish.org/topic/smoking_cessation.html for ways to help you quit smoking. Also check with your doctor for other quit smoking resources in your area.
Avatar_n_tn After the dose pak is completed then the inhaled steroids usually work. Oral steroids have very serious side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> but so does not breathing well. Short <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>term</span> steroid use with dose paks can really help. the acceptable cut off for diffusion and Pulmonary function test is 80. That is normal number that is generally acceptable. As an asthmatic I have taken dose paks off and on for yrs.
Avatar_f_tn I am not aware of the short or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>term</span> implications of what happened to you. I personally have not heard of this symptom before however there are others with more experience than I have. http://www.hepatitiscnewdrugresearch.com/hcv-related-nervous-system-disorders.html Please contact your doctor ASAP!
Avatar_f_tn I think it might be hormone/stress related. I started taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flonase</span> again, but I am not sure if it is safe to take every couple of weeks. ANy ideas or comments would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!!
Avatar_n_tn For now 25 mg of atenelol isn't really going to hurt me much and I am really trying to be extemely careful not to contract another bug as I certainly don't want to be threatened with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>term</span> prednisone. Any idea how <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> you need to go inbetween the 6 packs of short term prednisone? I'm scared to death of catching anything before the 1st of the year. I have for a long time taken a multi vitamin, 1000 units of Vit. D and recently added an extra 500mg vit C daily just to stay healthier.
Avatar_m_tn But the fact is that many many people use these every morning. (I did for years) What exactly are the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>term</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> of using these eyedrops? What will happen? I was also addicted to nose spray for about 25 years. Couldn't breathe without it. Until one day my doctor said "you gotta get off that" and gave me some type of cortisone spray. I couldn't believe I was off nose spray in less than a week! I have no idea what damage was done in those 25 years.
Avatar_m_tn the steroid sprays are the way to go, either way, it's FAR better on your system than <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>term</span> oral prednisone! Also, a good decongestant with a moistening agent, like Guafenisen (but be wary if you have high blood pressure/athlerosclerosis issues, as it can put you at risk for heart attacks)...All this should be monitored by ONE really good ENT Md! First and formost, find a good one, and stick with it! Also, I found acupressure (head/face) and acupuncture to be extremely helpful, also.
Avatar_m_tn Seems to help a little but I'm not sure about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>term</span> It isn't helping with the dizziness and tremors. Anyone else have ideas?
Avatar_n_tn Hi Greg I’m in a similar position to yourself regards the worry about the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>term</span> side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> of Prednisolone. I remember reading somewhere on the net that to help minimise some of the side effects of Prednisolone it is a good idea to take calcium supplements when taking the Prednisolone, I ran this past my G.P yesterday and she agreed that it perhaps would be a good idea to take the calcium supplements. I have also been in touch with Asthma U.
Avatar_m_tn I prefer to avoid further surgeries since they treat the polyps instead of the underlying cause of the polyps. Only effective <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> term treatment has been prednisone. I have taken 10-20mg daily for 2 years and bone density scan indicates very early osteoporosis so rheumatologist has prescribed Fosamax and calcium supplements.
Avatar_n_tn Did the info you read say the changes were temporary due to the med or were they permanent from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>term</span> use of the med? You and I both know when you use albuterol it causes the HR to speed up since it is an adrenergic med. But it only lasts 10 mins. or so. I've never heard of it causing long term rhythm changes but I don't check into things that much. I've used my asthma meds for years and I feel the same. Perhaps the best person to ask would be the pharmacist or your doctor.
Avatar_n_tn Interferon frequently stirs up the immune system on a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>term</span> basis, and can cause the development of, or the exacerbation of, a variety of autoimmune problems. I just finished a year on Restasis (eye drops), and it seems to have quelled the inflammatory process to a large extent. I have discontinued the drops for now, to see if the changes are lasting. They are different from and better than Steroids. The side effects are uncomfortable for a few weeks to months though.
Avatar_n_tn My GI doctor treating me is reluctant to prescribe Neupogen for the low WBC and ANC because oncologists tell him there is a concern about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>term</span> risks such as leukemia. The Cipro does provide me with a bit of a cushion. I know a lot of folks are on Neupogen and I asked him about it a couple times but he believes the risks are not worth the benfits. He may be ultra conservative or cautious, I don't know, but I have to rely on his knowledge to a certain extent.
Avatar_f_tn Your FT4 is a little on the low side. Midrange is the target for FT4, so yours could be a little higher. Your FT4 isn't terrible, so it's very likely that the answer to why you still have all the hypo symptoms lies in your FT3 levels and poor conversion. Inability to lose weight is a hypo symptom, as you know. So are hair loss. brain fog, body aches, fatigue and depression. "Yet my doctor seems to think I'm doing fine because he likes my lab results.
7469840_tn?1409849436 My suggestion is forget about it and let time heal. Every heavy drug treatment has possible <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>term</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span>. But my tinnitus has retracted to a less noticeable hiss and happens less often. So I expect in time the tinnitus will go away.
Avatar_n_tn It always came back within 30 seconds and there didn't seem to be any longer-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>term</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span>. However, the aching under my arms went away during this time period. My GP sent me to a neurologist. Exam was normal, although no electrical tests were done. He diagnosed me with carpal tunnel since I play the guitar. As I got off of the Levaquin, the problem got better, but never comletely went away.
Avatar_f_tn That being said, the fentanyl patches are 80 times stronger than morphine and where they do provide <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>term</span> relief, they are one of the hardest drugs to ever come off of, if you ever get to where you need to quit them. Just keep that in mind, it can take up to a year to feel "normal".
Avatar_n_tn I know how frustrating it is. I'm frantically searching for something that works <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>term</span> also. My ear nose and throat doctor was of no help and my allergist also doesn't know what to do. I had minor surgery from my ENT doctor where he scraped out my left nostril, only my left one is swollen shut. Anyways, after 4 weeks or so of wearing this funny thing on my face he took it off and behold... the surgery did nothing.
Avatar_n_tn I do clear my throat a lot and didn't really think of that as a side affect until I saw someone else posy about that being a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>term</span> side affect of the disease and not just of the treatment. I do lose my temper faster and may be more depressed but no meds for that as of now. No hair loss that I can see but my hair is very thin and short as it is and after losing all of it to Chemo, I feel fortunate. Never had the aches or chills and fever after any shot either.
Avatar_m_tn i have recurrent sinus infections, vertigo, numbness and pressure through neck and head, tingly hands and feet, brain fog, floating head feeling, list goes on. insane symptoms. i am doing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>term</span> antibiotics. *****, caught it late, cuz there was no rash, so docs were baffled. hope you can all get tested, although even testing is very inaccurate for lyme. horrible disease, with little research.
Avatar_n_tn Other things to look for - bad wiring, poor grounding, cell towers nearby - besides being cancer causing, faulty electrical currents prevent calcium from being absorbed in the body and besides the obvious <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>term</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span>, makes everyone very cranky (I'm including that symptom for a clue, in case your family is more irritable).
